Scott Porter & Janel Parrish Are Bringing 'The Last Five Years' to Life Like Never Before!

The beloved musical The Last Five Years is currently being produced in Los Angeles with two great stars – Hart of Dixie‘s Scott Porter and Pretty Little LiarsJanel Parrish – and in a way you’ve never seen it before!

The After Hours Theatre Company has created a multisensory experience utilizing scent design, 360° sound, curated cocktails, and an interactive pre-show experience.

Both Scott and Janel got their starts in theatre and they’re going back to their roots with this new production of Jason Robert Brown‘s two-person musical.

We caught up with the two stars to learn more about the production and how their experiences have been with the show so far.

Just Jared: When did you first hear about The Last Five Years? Have you ever seen a production of it before?

Scott Porter: I came to know of The Last Five Years while I was living in Tokyo for a year in 2003/4. My friend had a bootleg VHS of the original Chicago production of the show staring Norbert Leo Butz and Lauren Kennedy. I was blown away. As someone who was very familiar with the true breadth of theatre I always thought of Broadway shows to be big and flashy, and then I saw this incredibly powerful and personal story of just two individuals and I truly saw the power of this medium.

Janel Parrish: I heard about The Last Five Years when the soundtrack first came out in 2002. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with the story and the music. It’s been a dream role! I’ve never seen a production on stage before, only clips online!

We caught up with Janel to discuss everything she’s up to lately. Check out the interview below, as well as a gorgeous photo spread shot and glammed by Glenn Nutley from Hello Darling Salon.

You’ve been in everything lately. How lucky do you feel right now?

Well that’s nice of you to say! I feel very grateful for work. It’s what I love to do, and each time I work on something new, I feel myself learning and growing more as an actress and person. Grateful is definitely the word.

Happy Birthday, too! What did you do to celebrate?

Thank you! My husband and sister came in for the day. We had a table read in Portland, and my PLL family surprised me with a cake. Spent the rest of the day with my sis and hubby, enjoying the city, and Sasha Pieterse and her husband Hudson joined us for pool later. It was perfect!

You’re currently in Portland, working on The Perfectionists. How does it feel to finally be back in Mona’s shoes? Familiar or different?

Both. I slip back into her shoes so easily after 7 years, I feel like I know her so well. However, she is a little evolving. And that is something I love about Mona and our wonderful writers…they also keep me on my toes as an actress. Portland is an amazing city, and I’m so happy to be back in the PLL world, but with new stories and faces.

Pretty Little LiarsJanel Parrish revealed some tragic news about her now father-in-law, Buck Long. He was killed by an underage drunk driver just two weeks before her wedding to Chris Long.

“A few weeks ago, we got the awful news that my now father in law was tragically killed by a drunk driver on his beloved Sunday motorcycle ride,” Janel posted on Instagram. “Words can’t explain the feeling of losing someone to something so senseless… something that could have been prevented. Please read about his life, and if you’re moved by his story, help donate to MADD to help make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else. Link in my bio. Love you Buck.”

Buck was killed instantly when the 18-year-old driver hit him on August 26, just two weeks before Janel and Chris‘ wedding date.

In her Instagram tribute, Janel included a link where you can give money to help prevent future drunk driving tragedies.

Our thoughts are with all of Buck‘s loved ones. RIP.
